here with some fun
exciting cybre news!!!
(jk it's not all that exciting
I wanted to give an update on how things are coming along on the cybre presses
( since it's been oh gosh a month since last issue),
and so I spun up a quick new category for cybre‐short‐blogpost‐things—the catalogue number is
and you're looking at it here.
was a hard month for…
I think pretty much everybody?
It sure seems like it anyway.
Let me know:
If I wanted to dig into my vaguely religious upbringing I'd talk about blah blah days of repentance and suffering in preparation for a time of rebirth and the coming of
the Lord—but I think it's actually more the fact that we're on the tail end of a number of ,
dark months that's done it lol.
I know things are different down there
Whatever the reason is,
it seems like half of my timeline is on a sabbatical of some form or another—and that's not saying that's a bad thing,
there has been a lot of work happening—but not necessarily of the sort which you'll notice right away.
The most flashy news is that there are
which you can use to subscribe to new issues of your fav
There are feeds for
these dispatches as well.
You might also notice the website getting a little more experimental with its spellings,
both here and in the old zines.
This is a new feature that I'm trying out,
which has increased the build time of the site from just a couple seconds to like 30 or so—so hopefully I don't wind up any damage to whatever machine
has this running on
like the new spellings,
you can turn them off on zine issues by appending
to the end of the catalogue number,
of the zines are also what gets sent out via
so you shouldn't find any problems there.
The code making all of this happen is wonderfully complex and,
while I wouldn't necessarily have recommended you look at the source code for this website
wouldn't recommend so now.
on the other hand,
should be glorious.)
Everything is still a little bit under‐ as things all get shifted over to the new systems,
so a few things might be broken or whatnot—hopefully that will all get cleaned up within the next few weeks.
is still on and I've got some exciting things
planned for it—I'm hoping I won't regret saying that it should be out by the end of the month?
and y'all know that,
so no guarantees.
In terms of more general life updates
(this is still 95% a personal project y'know),
I've somehow gone from a fake instance admin who's just there in case of to a not‐fake admin idk??
who is the only point‐of‐contact for on my instances right now;
made another release which means that my work for the fork has gone from overdue to
(and there's a tonne more work I need to do there as well);
my sleep schedule has been all out of whack on account of working so hard and needing quiet alone time at the end of the day;
tonnes of personal shit that I'm not at liberty to discuss in a public place—aka so I'm fucking exhausted every day.
I have some really cool not‐quite‐cybre projects coming your way as well,
that I know at least
of you will be excited for
Kit)—but I'm keeping hush about them until they reach a finished state.
(Good life advice in general,
That's all I have for thisCYBREDISPATCH—hope to get some more content to y'all soon.
Stay safe out there,
and stay cybre
